Microforms

microfilm equipmentLooking for a newspaper article from the past? The Microforms Room contains back issues of newspapers, periodicals, and other items in various formats.  Microfilm and microfiche are the most common formats. Materials owned by the University of Louisiana at Lafayette or obtained through Interlibrary Loan for UL Lafayette users may be printed free of charge. Materials from other sources may be printed for 25 cents a page. Readers are available which have reading, printing, and other features.  Microforms is located around the corner from the Reference Desk on the first floor.  Locate microform materials in the Library Catalog.

We also offer several databases and digital applications for historical newspaper materials.  Most of these resources are available to UL Lafayette users only.
